Maruti Suzuki, India's largest carmaker, seems to reeling under pressure to meet the scaling demand of its compact SUV, the Vitara Brezza, in India. The company, which has sold over 50,000 units of the Vitara Brezza since its entry into the Indian market, continues to have longer waiting period due to capacity constraints.

The current waiting period of the Vitara Brezza stands at 27 weeks, RS Kalsi, ED, Marketing & Sales of Maruti Suzuki, told MoneyControl.
